  • Column One: Remote mount point
  • Column Two: Local access point -- a symbolic link to the actual local mount point
    • /private/var/automount contains the real mount point
    • /Network/Servers is recommended for the link location as the links will be visible in Network:Servers in the Finder.
  • Column Three: Protocol for file system: afp, hfs, nfs, smbfs, etc.
  • Column Four: options - the net option flags that it is not a static file system
# niload -m fstab . < /etc/fstab

/etc/hosts

#  nidump hosts /
127.0.0.1	localhost
255.255.255.255	broadcasthost
